Hello friends, I am new to site and post an introduction yesterday about my mission. I currently am help educate locals about conservation and sustainable. To do that I require to read more book and get knowledge, but books too expensive for me to buy and I can only read from library. I always photocopy the books from the library (we can not borrow the scientific books) and study them using the photocopied book at home. The photocopy is allowed because this is under personal research use and not commercial. Right now I have read Cribb books, The Genus Paphiopedilum 2nd Edition, Slipper Orchids of Borneo 1st Edition, Slipper Orchids of Borneo 2nd Edition. I am still looking for some books and I hoping someone can send me a scan PDF of their books.

Your support to my conservation mission is very appreciated.

Here is list of books that I need PDF color scan (most important first):
1. Orchid Digest The Paphiopedilum Issue Volume 82-4
2. Lance Birk Paphiopedilum Growers Manual, 2nd Edition
3. Dr. Jack Fowlie checklist and articles of Paphiopedilums in Orchid Digest
4. Professor Guido Braem The Genus Paphiopedilum Natural History and Cultivation Volume 1 and 2
5. Professor Guido Braem The Genus Paphiopedilum 2nd Edition eBook
6. First description of Paphiopedilum ooi, sugiyamanum, platyphyllum, inamorii, kolopakingii, supardii.

The PDF scans provided will not be use for commercial and will only be personal use for my research purpose. I really appreciate your help toward making Borneo indigenous tribes value conservation and understood how to protect plants for future generation. I also aims to try and encourage nation to produce Paphiopedilum to sell and maybe cooperate holistic with the village collectors.

My email is s_c_wong95-sab@yahoo.com

I am humbly thank everyone for support and help. I will share my progress from time to time, but because now is Covid-19 season and we movement restriction, my goal is finish study all the PDF books that you sent and then once Covid over I will go back to the villages and continue with the mission. Below I share with you the photos of the wild-collected Paphiopedilum by collectors, and why I really need yours help to provide the PDF scan of book and make this dream of conserving Paphiopedilum became reality. I do not grow any Paphiopedilum as mention in my intro because it against my principle. This photo I took when I visit the collector and understood the situation, their income source, and why they make a living by collect. I want to try to change mindset of villagers to learn and understood this Paphiopedilums will maybe extinct one day.

We here have many Paphiopedilum lover, but legal Paphiopedilum like in flask or seedling is very expensive and no one want to sell. Most time the village collector go in forest, collect plant, then sell for very cheap. Maybe RM50 (12USD) for P. rothschildianum with 3 growth, volonteanum maybe 5 growth RM50. Some cheap one maybe RM10 (2USD) for 1 growth. I am currently on one-man mission because my country government and law enforce no political will. Wild Paphiopedilum can cross border so easily within country illegal and no one care about it. I hope you can support my mission by sharing the information and send PDF of the book.

Thank you all very so much and God bless you for your helping.

I am all for conservation etc. But 1 of those books you mentioned is like 665 pages, and I don't think somebody is going to scan 665 pages into a pdf.

The other thing is that no-one really knows you, and while limited pages are allowed to be scanned for research purposes ---- I think there is some rule about scanning entire books (that violates copyright etc).

cs ---- if you email the authors and mention specifically you would only like to see the 'conservation' chapters, then there is a chance that they can even help you directly.

That is an important mission you talk about.
What is your concept and what measures are you taking?
Is there an institution you work with?

Thank you Mr. SouthPark. I will do that and contact authors. Can please share email for Mr. Harold Koopowitz, Mr. Lance Birk? I just now find and already got Professor Braem email, will contact him later.

Right now more important Orchid Digest Paphiopedilum Issue because the update checklist and the CITES article. Also Lance Birk species and chapter on conservation.

I think for Dr. Jack Fowlie no more we can contact because he already pass on. Maybe someone who got his Orchid Digest can kindlier scan PDF of his article and checklist (only article, no full book). I think hard to contact author who make original description for Paphiopedilum sugiyamanum, platyphyllum, kolopakingii. Paphiopedilum ooii is Koopowitz. Supardii is Braem. Paph. inamorii is I just remember maybe can find in the library when movement restrict is no more.

Thank you for suggest, Mr. SouthPark. Very appreciate, God bless.

Hello Mr. Musa, nice meet you.

My concept is focus on going to the ground, the village, the collector. Understood them, how they make a living... Many sell orchid because easy. Go jungle, collect free, then sell. One day maybe get RM100-200 (24-48USD). Enough buy 2 bags of rice, vegetables. There have apply permit, but the local enforcement no good. I approach collector, get them understood that Paphiopedilum go extinct if collect many. In past two years they tell Paphiopedilum dayanum getting lesser, and Paphiopedilum virens hard to find now, not like when 10 years ago. Paphiopedilum rothschildianum still plenty they tell, but if no body educate about conservation and how propagate, it will gone in maybe later future 10 years.

I not join any institution yet because I want make progress first. No progress sometime the institute do not put important to it, they see no serious. Plants have less attention, so many collecting but any report no once take seriously. If big animal like elephant, sunbear everyone help. Everyone sad. But if plant no one seem interested because is plant. I am sad for big animal and for plant. I want try make the local understood plant is important, just like animal. So now I make progress, then record it, then contact institute and tell my method work.

I hope one day can make a good understanding with government and local people. Now focus is educate. Before I educate them, I educate myself. That is reason I request humbly for scan PDF of book section on Paphiopedilum checklist and conservation article.

Thank you for supports, Mr. Musa. God bless.
